Issuing a statement on CAT report here today Deputy Mayor of Shimla Tikender Singh Panwar said that CAG reveals poor governance in the state depriving the state people from social and economic benefits. Party said that CAG pin point elaborately about the misappropriation of public funds which is shown rampant in state, despite several reminders state has shown least interest in preparing a plan for the advance payments utilization. CAG asked the state to adopt the mode of abstract contingent (AC) bills and subsequent submission of detailed countersigned bills (DC), which is prevalent elsewhere. Government is extremely sluggish in completing various development project in scheduled time and submitting Utilization certificates (UCs) for seeking further grants from the Center. "Interestingly the report points out to a whopping 17826 UCs awaited with an amount of Rs 4837.67 crores that has been detrimental at the developmental activities in the state,'' the statement said. According to CPI(M), CAG has stated that out of 12 district four fall in the Seismic Schedule -V and seven in Schedule IV. There are no disaster committees in any districts except Kullu, moreover, doctors and paramedics who expected to offer medical assistance to the people after the disaster are not trained. CAG on the social general and economic sectors torn aside the so called pro people outlook of the government and commented on a large number of areas but just to point out a few which bears immense importance for the state social infrastructure, CPI(M) mentioned in the statement. Party also took Congress and BJP regime in the state head on alleging that there is institutional mechanism for environment clearance and post clearance in the state to protect its fragile eco system. The CPI (M) has stated the government is busy in politically protecting itself from the misdemeanours committed in the past and hence, did not devote ample time for proper governance and the orientation of both the elected and the executive has never been the ‘people’.
